The first comprehensive textbook on endocrinology and diabetes mellitus! This book links the practice of clinical medicine and science of endocrinology by presenting a balanced and evidence-based account of various endocrinology problems. It provides insights into various types of common and not so common complexities of disease and its management. Diabetes is potentially preventable with lifestyle modifications and medication; similarly, numerous nutritional deficiency diseases are also preventable. The book looks closely at new developments about the endocrines and their dysfunctional states and explains how clinical intervention with appropriate tests and early diagnosis can prevent or delay the onset of disease. The two-volume set is divided into six parts with a brief account of relevant embryology, applied anatomy, and physiology. To help the reader better understand the clinical problems and management approach, tables, figures, algorithms, flow charts, diagrams and sketches, and illustrations are included. Lt. Gen.
